The population density is a measurement of population per unit area or unit volume. In Figure 6.1 (b), the population density is unevenly distributed:

  1. The northern-most areas like Jammu and Kashmir and the northeastern states like Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh have the least population density.
  2. The northern stretch from Punjab to West Bengal has the highest population density.
  3. The central, western and northeastern states have a moderate population density.
  4. Southern states like Kerala and Tamil Nadu also have a high population density
